bsg centurion 1001 Battlestar Galactica Finale Review

The short non-spoiler take: Holy crap! My take on the Battlestar Galactica series finale was that it was 99% incredibly satisfying and delivered beyond what I was hoping for. In the end, it seems destiny will be what it will be, much like fighting gravity.

The finale was heart pounding. I did not need coffee to stay up for this one. The advertising for this final episode spouted endlessly that we will know the truth. Indeed. The ending was satisfying, sad, fulfilling and the truth of it all confused me.

Sure, there were a few loopholes or discontinuities but I chose to focus on where they were going, not what they were missing or glazing over. They had to get somewhere without being so verbose that it distracted from the end game.

bsg finale caprica gaius p Battlestar Galactica Finale Review

I sat down and committed my household to Battlestar Galactica (BSG) all night long. I started focusing on it during the replay of the special from Monday evening when Ronald D. Moore quipped about the phrase on how it “all happened before and it will all happen again” came about from a scene he saw in Peter Pan where they said that.

I don’t remember anyone in BSG thinking happy thoughts, or flying… except out of airlocks!

A Nagging Theme Or Two

The one theme that has been present since the very first episode was No 6 in Baltar’s head telling him “Trust in God’s plan for you.” This was presented to us time and time again throughout the 4 (or was it 6?) seasons!

The other nagging theme that always lurked below the surface of my tortured mind was a point made midway through the series, and that was the ability that Cylons had to project themselves into fantasy worlds that they build in their heads.

Why? Because of the visions that some of the humans had throughout the show. Baltar with his hot No. 6, in his head. Lucky Bastard. But there were the shared visions between Baltar, Caprica, Hera, Athena and Laura had of the opera house. That always had me suspicious, period.

And Starbuck? She didn’t have visions. But her artistic tendencies to draw symbols from mankind’s destiny and being called the harbinger of death kind of makes you wonder about her. Then coming back from death but not being a Cylon? WTH was that? But more on all this later. Or will there be? Maybe I’ll just stop typing… and call it God’s plan.

The Finale Delivers In Bucket Loads

Watching scenes of our favored characters in Caprica city, “Before the Fall” really drove home their lives as they were developing before it all happened. The back story was great to see. Pondering the label, “Before the Fall“: I have to look back and wonder, was that past tense, or future tense, since this all going to happen again?

Watching the preparations on the Galactica to head off to get Hera back hit home with some good emotional anchors:

  • Adama turning over command of the fleet,
  • Anders tank being hooked up into the CiC.*
  • Lee Adama making Romo Lampkin President, in his absence.
  • Or the surreal scene of a squad of Centurions in the flight deck, preparing for battle.

*Tigh telling Adama it wasn’t too late to shove all the Cylons in the CiC out the airlock and Adama saying it would take too much time. – was frakking hilarious and poignant to me. The Cylon TIgh, looking to jettison Cylons, staying true to the humanity, the commander and the ship he grew to love.

Action Stations

When the Galactica jumped in on top of this freaky new looking Cylon ship that reminded me a bit of the Shadow ships from Babylon 5, the ensuing firefight left me wondering if the Galactica would survive.

Then the Galactica ramming into the hull of Cavil’s ship, making their own airlock with the ship and ground teams dispersing into the Cylon ship, looking for Hera. Now that’s how you make an entrance!

Watching new and old style Centurions in battle was surreal. Even if the CGI seemed a little bit funny with the old Centurions. Did you notice that?

A Momentary Truce

The humans get Hera, but Cavil snags her back. Finally, Gaius, for all his chitter chatter, finally hits his stride and serves his purpose in this entire mythos as he talks Cavil into a truce.

bsg finale caprica and balter Battlestar Galactica Finale Review

It’s here that Gaius says that he tells Cavil that he sees angels (The In-the-head Caprica and Gaius) and that there are other forces at work via puzzles deciphered in prophecy, by dreams given to a chosen few.

I was on edge waiting for that other shoe to drop from Cavil’s side, and boy, did it. Tyrol interrupts a data stream when he discovers that Tory was who killed Cally and in his rage, Tyrol kills Tory, which ends the cease-fire everyone had. So much for peace.

Destiny Takes Its Path

Chaos ensued and Adama yells at Starbuck to jump them out of there but she has no coordinates. Instead she inputs the numbers that she’s associated with the song that Hera drew out and gave her.

Plop. Kara’s coordinates put them right on top of the moon, our moon, with our Earth in sight. I actually never expected to see this. Despite being teased us at times when we could see constellations in the background we recognize, like Orion, but I just thought they were messing with my mind. (It’s not that hard sometimes!)

After scoping out the planet and its spear carrying human species, they decide to stay and blend in. But how they do it confused me. Or more in-line with the show, took a leap of faith to follow their actions.

What’s left of humanity shuns technology and blends with the natives… our ancestors.

Adama makes the decision to have Anders drive the ships of the fleet and all its technology into the Sun, and live out their years with the natives, without their technology. Technology has been their curse. They’re done with it. No one seems to argue.

William Adama tells Laura that he calls this Earth because Earth is a dream they’ve been chasing for a long time.

Tough And Touching Moments

Starbuck saying goodbye to Anders in his tank, who pulls through his Cylon induced fog to tell her that he’ll see her on the other side. Eh?

Watching William Adama being the last person to leave the Galactica in his old Viper, looking over the fleet one last time.

Watching William Adama bid farewell to Lee and flies off into the distance with Laura in the Raptor with him, who dies in-flight. Bill builds a little home and talks to her grave, updating her on what’s up.

Not a surprise, Tyrol has had it with people and goes off to his own island.

Gaius and Caprica together with no trauma going on in the background finally. For possibly for the first time, Gaius can have a grieving moment for his father. They then head off to do what Gaius knows… farming.

My “What the Frak” Moment

Lee and Kara are talking about what they’re going to do, now that everyone is off doing what they’re gonna do. Kara says that she is leaving. She’s done here and has completed her journey and just vanishes in mid conversation. That’s it.

Backtrack: Remember when Baltar announced to the assembled crowd that his study of Kara’s blood proved that Kara was 100% human? If you paid attention, Gaius said that the blood on the pendant that came from the corpse is 100% human. I got caught up with everything the first time and missed that. I thought he was proving Kara was human, but I noticed this the 2nd time through, he proved the dead pilot back on the burnt out Earth was human.

The Future Happens Anyway

150,000 years into the future, we see downtown New York. We learn that humanity has discovered the mitochondrial Eve, the woman to whom all of humanity can be traced to. Hera. We also see humanity starting to build bipedal robots and what not… here we go again!

The Big Reveal

Looking over Ronald D. Moore’s shoulder in his cameo appearance in one of the final scenes, stands the in-their-heads versions of Gaius and Caprica. WTF? They make note of the fact that Eve was discovered in Tanzania and how Eve was found alongside her Human and Cylon parents.

Caprica said something about how even though it happened before, that mathematically speaking, there’s a chance it won’t happen again. Then they mention god, and Gaius reminds her that he doesn’t like being called that. Eh? The Matrix?

I got confused here. Is society pretty much Cylon at this point? Are these two really angels, or Cylons? Has this just been a big master plan, a tale from god that we’ve watched all along? Are we being being set up for a sequel in case they decide to go with that?

My Take

The finale was a big payoff.

I really enjoyed just about every single second of it. There was tons of satisfying action. That final jump by the Galactica was way awesome! As it popped out of FTL flight near Earth, it flexed, wobbled and rippled – pieces and parts being flung off in the aftermath. I thought it was going to end right there.

Yet once everyone is on the planet, everyone seemed agreeable to give up technology for spears. I get it… yet really, would you? NO! I want my microwave and cell phone and laptop damnit. Hmm… that would mean building the internet all over again.

It was a very fairy tale ending in this rag tag fleet of humans just seeming to go along with this decision, so I had a little bit of a problem with this. Yet, like I said at the front of this article, suspending disbelief to allow for the story to be moved along.

Kara
What in blue blazes was Kara Thrace? A ghost that EVERYONE saw? Another angel? An ascended being from Stargate. (She’s in a lot of trouble if that’s the case)

Was Kara something that everyone wanted, or needed to see? It’s been said that Moore said she can be whatever we wanted her to be. That feels like a cop out. Why, after delivering so many answers, do we get this grey answer to one of the biggest developments in the mythos? I’d like to have had Kara explained. Plain and simple. Especially since everyone saw and interacted with her. Especially since she had a life she lived which fed to this point in time.

As far as we can tell, even she didn’t know until that very last moment. Come on, Moore. I would have liked you do give more than this to us.

Angels?

So if we go back to literally day one of this whole thing, angels have been guiding Gaius and later, Caprica on their paths? Has this really been their story all along? Have the humans been nothing but pawns in this entire series?

If so, the sufferance of humanity seems cheapened by this new wrinkle. Well, at least it didn’t end on a Holodeck, but it sure felt close to that.

I’m not unhappy

The entire series broached a whole new kind of entertainment. The kind that deals with our fears and hopes and realities of what is and what could be. It dealt with how we do have control of our destiny. But we can only control our destinies just so far until they intertwine with others. Then the group destiny that we become a part of, no matter what else we do is what dictates our end game. That’s what I took away from the series.

Now we have to watch this whole series all over again, and watch it from the angels point of view as they guide our hapless characters along their sordid way.

The Sad

But for now, there will be no more new episodes. Sure, we’ll have a few movies that take place during the series time frame. Sure, we’ll have the prequel, Caprica. But the end of the show has been laid before us. Battlestar Galactica, the journey, has found its goal.

It’s time to say farewell to the journeys of William Adama, Laura Roslin, Kara Thrace, Lee Adama, Gaius Baltar, Saul Tigh, Doc Cottle, Helo Agathon, Galen Tyrol, Ellen Tigh, Felix Gaeta, Sharon Valerii, Caprica Six, Tom Zarek, Romo Lampkin, Cavil, Sam Anders and the coolest, new Centurions.

My Question To You

For you, what character really made the show. What event really hit home in the series that resonated with you?

Update: 3/29/09:  I’ve added some perspectives on some of Moore’s approach to the Battlestar Galactica series in a new article we’ve published.

  1. Did anyone else specifically think that the Opera House vision paid off incredibly cheap? I mean, it’s not like structures of the ship resembled an opera house very well. Rip off. What it did do justice to was an earlier vision of Gaius and Six holding a baby, with Six saying that she was the future/salvation of the race. BUT the two did not have her as a baby, but a few years out. Is that a tot? LOL.

  2. @MAKsys – That’s a broad brush you’re using to explain why the secular didn’t like the series. Judging by what I’ve read on other sites, reaction is largely negative (for the reasons that have already been elaborated on here), regardless of people believing in religion or not. Everyone likes something about the ending, but the actual explanations are where people start to complain.

    Here’s the thing; speaking for myself, I *personally* found the religious aspects to be intellectually offensive *BUT*, this is a relatively minor part of why I disliked the ending. I’ve already given two examples of endings that were truly atrocious and did not have any religious aspect to them at all (B5 and DS9; and, no, the ‘prophets’ were not gods – they were clearly established to be aliens who had been considered gods at one time in a classic case of, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”, as Arthur C. Clarke put it).

    Let’s assume that the ending came down to finding some alien technology that would let humanity defeat the Cylons and get them safely to a planet where they could settle down… that would ALSO have been an atrocious ending for the same reasons the aired ending was atrocious; because it renders the struggle, and the entire story that came before that point, meaningless. It’s an external element introduced at the last minute to resolve a plot-point that otherwise could not be resolved.

    As for the religious comments… err… no. Occam’s Razor applies here… why look for a complex solution when the simple solution fits, particularly in the absence of any proof to the contrary? There has never been any case of ‘divine providence’ that can quantitatively, qualitatively with hard, reproducible evidence prove anything other than coincidence occurred.

    As for the comments on prophets; prophecies are always notoriously vague and have ALWAYS been identified AFTER the fact where it’s very clear that the human mind’s propensity for finding patterns has moulded the ‘prophecy’ to fit the event.

  3. @Ian

    Believe it or not, I would have preferred more concrete answers myself.

    Vic

  4. @Vic – I absolutely believe you, and I’m not at all surprised to hear you say that.

    People have seized on the fact that I’m an atheist as the reason I didn’t like the ending. Absolutely not… and hopefully my last reply makes clear my reasoning.

    Star Trek, as much as I love it, had a nasty habit of creating an impossible scenario from which there’s no escape… and then at the bleakest moment someone shouts out, “Stream chronitons through the deflector array and create an inverse wave-pulse at a frequency of 3.2GHz”… and the problem magically goes away.

    I hate that kind of ending! it’s a cop-out. The viewer with a vested interest in the plot development loves to journey with the characters and try to work out a solution with them. When the solution is as impossible to fathom as this, it cheapens the story, and frankly, bringing as powerful a character as a god into the thing means there’s no way they could ever have failed to win.

  5. I’ve touched on that sort of thing before, when people argue with me about plot points that make no sense, even in a sci-fi or fantasy film. “Just enjoy it! Don’t analyze everything!”

    I can do that to a point, but things that happen in a work of fiction have to make sense within that universe in order to maintain a suspension of disbelief.

    Now they’d been hinting at the whole God aspect for a long time on the show, but it was always kind of “out there.” To have something miraculous happen in order to wrap things up on a show so embedded in the plausible science side of sci-fi did seem like a cop-out.

    Vic

  6. @ Ian – my brush may be broad, but your’s (reaction largely negative) is flat out wrong. Over on the SciFi forum, the reaction (as judged from the polls is overwhelmingly positive).

    What I don’t get is what show have you been watching for the past six years?!?!

    You were told they were coming to Earth – THIS Earth.
    The whole journey was guided by the Pythia/Dying Leader prophecies.
    Kara’s childhood vision of the ‘eye’ were dead-on, she was alternately claimed to be an Angel and the ‘harbinger of death’. Ultimately, you saw Kara’s Viper explode, then she resurrected in a pristine Viper.

    And after six years of watching this, you claim to have found the religious aspects of the show “intellectually offensive”?

    You know what I find so stupid as to offend my intellect, shows like Dr. Phil, Oprah and Jerry Springer – and you know what I do, I DON’T WATCH THEM.

  7. @MAKsys – My brush is… “wrong” ?!?! Bit of a mixed metaphor.

    No, we were not told they were coming to THIS Earth; they found Earth… it was a nuclear wasteland. THIS Earth is not the original Earth.

    The Journey wasn’t guided by the Pythia prophecies – the story diverged from those prophecies long ago and in the end, it was not a dying leader who led humanity to ‘Earth’, but an angel (in the literal sense) who was also called the ‘harbinger of death’, another bit of throw-away drama that never led anywhere. as it was always implied that ‘harbinger of death’ was in reference to humanity, not the Cylons.

    Yes, I found the religious aspects to be intellectually offensive. They were sufficiently suppressed in the first 2 seasons (primarily Caprica-6) and at least part of the third that I could overlook them. Put another way, the story itself was compelling enough that I wanted to see where it went, regardless.

    … and here’s where I restate, yet again, that it is less the religious nature of things that annoyed me about the ending and more that the story that had been built up over the four seasons was essentially rendered meaningless.

    Oh, and I don’t know where you’re looking on the sci-fi BSG forum; I’ve spent a good bit of time on there and the bulk of messages are completely unrelated to BSG and those that are, are split roughly 50/50. I based my comment on the fact that if you google, “BSG finale” and browse around the sites such as this one, the result is overwhelmingly negative, for the reasons that have already been brought up on this forum by me and others.

  8. @Vic – I know what you’re saying; it’s funny, because it can go the other way, too. In Star Wars, The Force was always a mystical force, not religious, not magic, but somehow still beyond definition by science… until Episode 1 when it suddenly became some form of microbe or genetic material (midichlorians*).

    For me, that was somewhat of a let-down as it, again, seemed to go against the grain of what had been defined before.

    * This may have been touched on in the novels but they are non-canon, so I’m going purely by what was in the movies.

  9. I just finished watching the final, a big fan of sci fi for many years. I loved the characters, but the ending is not special. All twlight zone fans, old Star Trek, Babylon 5, many mant old sci fi stories have a same Adam and Eve, science mixing with religion concept. The turn of the wheel, one age fades into mythos, forgotten, then born again. The agnels are NOT just Jewish/Christian lines, older religions, Indian/Native North American, South American tribes have all many similar story lines. Check out Europe Pagan myths, etc, etc,the play is always the same, only the actors are better. BUT it was still fun to watch.

  10. @Ian – you’re trying way to hard, which is your prerogative.

    First – Earth. Concluding the show with ‘another’ Earth would have been cheap. The whole show is wrapped around them being ‘us’ – not aliens with similar failings/struggles, but humans, tied into our own mythologies.

    As for the ‘harbinger of death’, that phrase was uttered by a Cylon, and Kara was a harbinger of death – for the Cylons. This isn’t that difficult.

    As for fan reaction, as in all things, the whiners/complainers are over-represented. Go look at the POLLS (like I said). They’re no where near 50/50. You are in the distinct minority.

    Go back and watch the first two seasons – there is no shortage of religious references.

    I would imagine most watchers of the show can find more than a few questions they would like answered, and can point out a plot twist or development they would change – but your complaints go above and beyond that. Face it – your problem with the series is all wrapped around YOUR problem (read: intolerance) with religion.

  11. @Ian

    You may have found it “intellectually offensive” but intellect and belief in God are not mutually exclusive, however much you continue to insist that they are.

    To me it’s ridiculous to NOT believe in God.

    Vic

  12. Whether you are a believer in God, an atheist, or have come to terms that there is something of a greater power, why cannot we just enjoy the show and with it’s ideals. I mean, it is just a show, and why does Religion always get the shortend of the stick?
    I am Catholic, yet I listen heavily to Tool even with Maynard’s ideals about religion, and I also am a huge fan of Berserk even with the creator’s input about God in the Berserk world.
    After all, this is only a show and what the creators have put in, it is their world, why cannot we just enjoy it? If the writers want to input some religious context in their show, it pertains to that show’s guidelines on how it furthers the story, right? Why cannot we just enjoy that?

  13. SK47:

    Well said and I challenge anyone else out there to address the show without going down the religion path.

    It’s easily doable… I’ve done it for 6 years.

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO REMEMBER SOMETHING:

    This is the beauty of entertainment, art or what have you.

    It’s a massive Rorschach inkblot test.

    We see what we either relate to or hate or find appealing or what have you. It’s our escape in whatever form we look to it as.

    Some of us wanted answers.
    Some of us like the open ended finale.
    That’s the awesome power of individual perspectives. The different ways we see things.

    When I came away from the finale, I had a specific perspective (ONE THAT I NEVER ACTUALLY MENTIONED) but as I read what everyone has to say, though it may have differed from my take, I think, “Hey, that’s pretty interesting. I like where this person is coming from”

    I’ve gotten new ideas from the different perspectives. It makes me think, rather than dig in and try to defend my perspective. I like my perspectives being challenged. It opens up my world to so much more.

    Sheesh, I hate ranting. But I am done.

    Peace out and be nice everyone. Remember, we all have different colored lenses.

  14. @MAKsys – You can keep scream loud and often that I hated the show because it had religious overtones, but simply saying something is so doesn’t make it so. I’ve given a clear reason why I disliked the ending and given two other examples to illustrate my meaning, neither of which involved religion in any way.

    The rest of your message adds nothing to the conversation; it’s simply a rehash of your attempts to twist my words to fit you misinterpretation of my comments. This makes your reply irrelevant and boring and not any more of a reply than this. When you go back and read what I wrote and stop trying to twist it around, come back a

  15. @MAKsys – that got cut off; it should have ended with:

    “… come back and we’ll talk some more”

  16. @Vic – Oh, come on! You *KNOW* I have *NEVER* said that intellect and belief in god are mutually exclusive… my EXACT quote was:

    “I *personally* found the religious aspects [of the show] to be intellectually offensive *BUT*, this is a relatively minor part of why I disliked the ending.”

    I fully qualified my statement to indicate it was in the context of the show. I’m sorry you missed that, but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume it was an honest mistake because, thus far, I’ve not seen any evidence that you have attempted to deliberately misinterpret my comments.

    I’m not going to get into a deep religious discussion here because my comments will just be deleted. However, since you made the statement you did, I will respond, this once, to that part of your post:

    Let me start by saying that I absolutely DO NOT believe that intellect and belief in god are mutually exclusive; I have known very smart and very dumb people from both sides of the argument. Although I did not initially say this, I will further qualify my comment by saying that I believe it is entirely possible for intellectual people to believe but I do not accept that belief is, in and of itself, an intellectual exercise. I don’t say this to ridicule but simply because, and I think you would have to agree, belief is defined as acceptance of a claim IN THE ABSENCE OF SUPPORTING FACTS.

    In order to be considered a fact, a claim must meet certain standards, the least of which is hard, fast, verifiable evidence to back it up. If a source makes a claim, then at a bare minimum, another independent source must verify that claim with hard, fast evidence.

    Believers consider god (or gods) an absolute, but there are 10,000+ religions in this world and only a handful believe in the same god you do. Excluding the differences even within christianity about what is the “right” thing to believe, the only source material is the bible, which is absolutely chock full of contradictions, thereby excluding the possibility of determining the factuality of the claims.

    A purely intellectual approach, such as that offered by science, starts with the presumption that a claim is INVALID. A hypothesis is formed, based on currently known facts (that have already been demonstrated to meet the stringent requirements I already detailed), a series of tests is formed to determine the validity of that hypothesis. If the hypothesis is shown to be incorrect, it is discarded and a new hypothesis formed based on the newly available facts (negatives can be at least as useful as positives).

    The point is that a purely intellectual approach EXCLUDES simple belief, starts with the known facts and sees where they lead. A belief-based approach, by definition, starts with a conclusion and ignores anything that would discount that conclusion.

    That belief-based systems were ONCE an intellectual pursuit I can fully accept. Man is driven to explain the world around him. Without scientific tools and only a rudimentary understanding of the world around him, various cultures have believed in magic, single gods, multiple gods, nature spirits and so on, all in an attempt to understand the world and its mysterious processes. A later model suggested that all things could be explained through various ratios of earth, wind, air and water. Later still, we discovered the atom, then we discovered quantum mechanics and we’re on the verge of going deeper still. What I’m saying is that religion is Science 1.0. It was an idea, an attempt to explain the world, but we’ve moved on and we have better models to describe our universe and those models are verifiable, are quantifiable, are reproducible and observable. No, we can’t answer every question, but there will always be more questions; that is the nature of what we are. No one believes that people are made up of various parts of wind, earth, air and fire… it was a perfectly reasonable (for the time) attempt to explain the world, but we now know better and discarding those old ideas when they can’t be validated is the natural evolution of our intellectual interrogation of the universe.

    Hopefully, you see the distinction between the two claims, even though I hadn’t actually made either in my original comment, where I was simply trying to point out that the ending failed to satisfy because the religious nature of the ending made the intellectual exercise of trying to fathom where the show was heading a pointless exercise, entirely derailed by an external element that changed the entire premise. Put another way, I was referring to the ENDING, not to religion itself.

  17. Just a question, but if you’ve made your point already, isn’t it moot to repeat it?

    I’m guessing from your verbose replies that you aren’t a fan of twitter.

  18. @Bruce – The fact that people are misconstruing, either deliberately or not, what I am saying, suggests that I do need to repeat. I’m not particularly interested in those who are deliberately twisting what I say, but for those who have raised interesting points or who have misunderstood what I have said, I feel the least I owe them is to clarify what I’ve said should they take offense.

    Oh, and actually, I do twitter, though it’s not my preferred medium, to be sure. :)

  19. @Ian – you’ve taken this way to personally, which is my fault.

    I should have made a general reply to all the atheists who found the introduction of God ‘intellectually offensive’ or otherwise disturbing and incongruent with the theme of the show.

    I’ve read a good many posts with derisive comments like “God did it”, from people that clearly have an emotional investment in attacking religion.

    What grates on me is how truly intolerant the supposedly enlightened really are – my favorite current example is the Global Warming TrueBelievers. Anyone that doesn’t fall in line is akin to a Nazi. The Obamaists are another example.

    I have a problem with homosexuality – many who support that lifestyle would call my homophobic (incorrectly). I’ve never watched a complete episode of ‘Will & Grace’ cause it makes me uncomfortable. Yet I’ve never felt the need to confront anyone over their sexuality – in person or on a forum. I certainly could have done without Gaeta’s ‘coming out’, but it didn’t ruin the BSG experience for me.

  20. Can I ask a question, it is about Gaeta from MAKsys’ response above. What made people think that Gaeta was gay in the first place? Reason I am asking is because through out the seasons before they made the character come out I did not think that Gaeta was gay.
    So what made people say, ‘Oh, Gaeta is definately a gay-boy’? Was it the way he expressed himself, the way he talked, his body motions? If so, that is kind of insulting dontcha think?

  21. SK47,
    I believe Gaetas Homosexuality was revealed in onlne webisodes called The Face Of the Enemy.
    I never saw them .

  22. Well…. I’ve decided to shut down comments on this article. I think we’ve said all that can be on this and it’s most definitely been heading off in directions that are spinning farther and farther from the show.

    It’s been a great discussion, but methinks it’s time to move on.
